    Red Sox Acquire Victor Martinez

    Red Sox Acquire Victor Martinez By Tim Dierkes [July 31 at 2:03pm CST]

    2:03pm: Done deal, says Nightengale via Twitter. MLB Network's Tom Verducci says pitcher Bryan Price is the third hurler going to Cleveland in the trade.

    1:35pm: MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo says (via Twitter) pitchers Nick Hagadone and Justin Masterson are in the deal (ESPN's Peter Gammons agrees). Gut reaction: nice haul. Mayo also says the two clubs are looking at additional names to add for Cleveland.

    1:27pm: FOX now says Clay Buchholz and Daniel Bard are not in this deal.

    12:55pm: USA Today's Bob Nightengale via Twitter: the Red Sox are about to acquire first baseman/catcher Victor Martinez from the Indians. Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse, trying to confirm, says it "looks good." FOX Sports agrees, and notes a lack of a third team involved. They also believe this kills the Adrian Gonzalez talks.
    "Now that's a real shame when folks be throwin' away a perfectly good white boy like that."

    Now THIS is a trade!
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    best part of this deal, as a NE Ohio resident, is that tomorrow night is Indians Hall of Fame night and also Victor Martinez bobblehead night. Better get all of those interns painting "Taylor" on the back of 45,000 bobbleheads
